Michelle Obama Won’t Watch RNC, Thinks Voters Should (VIDEO)
Michelle Obama isn’t tuning in to the Republican National Convention — but she wants you to.
“Let me start by saying I, as the wife of the guy they’re running against, I tend not to watch it,” the First Lady admitted to David Letterman on the Late Show Wednesday night, following prime-time convention coverage. “But I think it’s important for everyone to watch these conventions because this is the time you get to know the party, you understand the platform, you understand the candidates.”
“You know, this is technically where the campaign begins,” she continued. “So I think it’s very important for everyone to watch as much of both conventions as possible to make their decisions. I didn’t watch it, but…”
Well, that’s because her mind is already made up when it comes to November’s ballot.
But conversation didn’t stick to just politics.
Obama chatted with the late-night comedian about sleep-away camp, parenting advice and Kale chips.
In fact, Obama’s stop at Letterman wasn’t in regards to her husband, President Barack Obama, or his re-election campaign at all. It was one of three TV appearances that FLOTUS will make as part of a back-to-school media tour, in which she’s discussing ways for parents to help prepare their children to return to the classroom, according to the White House.
Next up on her trail: The Dr. Oz Show and Rachael Ray, which will both air in September.
